Give the Gift of Camp

Providing young Scouts with the opportunity to explore the great outdoors, learn valuable skills, and create lasting memories is truly rewarding

Monmouth Council, BSA has established the Campership Fund to assist families in financial need. This fund provides grants to help Scouts attend Forestburg Scout Reservation (FSR) and Quail Hill Scout Reservation (QHSR) Summer Camps. These life-changing camping experiences foster skills, values, and friendships that last a lifetime.

Here’s what you need to know about the Monmouth Council Campership Fund:

  1. Purpose: The fund supports families facing financial challenges, enabling Scouts to participate in summer camp adventures.
  2. Importance of Summer Camp:
    • Unique Highlight: Summer camp is a unique highlight of the Scouting journey.
    • Structured Fun: It provides purposeful, structured activities that replace idle video game time.
    • Badge Earning: Scouts challenge themselves, earn badges, and make lasting memories.
    • Life Skills: Scouting teaches life skills, including trustworthiness and self-belief.
    • Future Leaders: The outdoor adventure at Scout camp shapes future leaders who contribute positively to the world.

Last year more than 1,500 Scouts attended summer camp at Forestburg Scout Reservation and Quail Hill Scout Reservation. Whether it was a week-long Boy Scout camp or a Cub Scout Day Camp, the experiences they had and the new friends they met will impact them throughout their lifetime.

As the summer quickly approaches your gift will provide them with time outdoors, a chance to play, an opportunity for experiential learning and growth — plus memories, skills, and experiences they will cherish their entire lives.
